one of the excellent golf course in a great golf area !!!
Great course! (Presidents) Well cared for. Challenging. Lots of sand and trees. I played early in the day but the greens were very slow. Still, it's worth a visit.
I've played a lot of high end courses around the country & HGC offers two comparable quality & challenging courses that are top notch for the price ($30 - 75 depending on time & day). Presidents is more links style. Generals is more traditional wooded course you see in TN. Both course conditions are top notch year round. Some weekdays can be tough getting your ideal tee time as they do a bunch of organization outings. Staff is great throughout their operations. If you eat lunch in the clubhouse go with the tri-tip sandwich or the pimento cheeseburger, serious yum!
I played the Presidents Reserve today and I have to say that I was surprisingly disappointed. Not in the course as much as the service. Granted, it is early in the year and maybe they aren't fully staffed, but the staff that they did have seemed to not care about out of town guest. I showed up an hour before my tee time and specifically told the pro shop and the starter that I would like to get off early if I could. While I watched a couple of different groups go off with less than a full foursome, they did nothing to put me in with either group. When my tee time was getting near I returned to the starter and reminded him that I had no idea who I was playing with and needed him to introduce me to the group I was playing with. Needless to say he didn't and I ended up going out 20 minutes late as a twosome stuck behind a bunch of foursomes. The course itself was nice and in good condition for early in the year.
This Presidents Reserve course is excellent...best public course I've ever played! The scenery is worth the price of admission alone, no kids playing on the greens, no un-sighlty condos built around the course, just you and nature and an excellent well kept course with a very friendly staff...makes for a great day of golf!
